As for gradient blending, I'm not really sure what you mean by acrylic sheer...
You can make acrylic translucent (sheer) by just adding water. It hard to explain it unless you show someone sometimes.

By the looks of it Yuna's wedding dress looks a bit similar to the pattern I used for my Serenity cosplay. With modifications it might work; I used pattern BUTTERICK B5325 and for the fabric I used Bridal Satin. don't get cheap satin because it just doesn't look nice. Bridal Satin is more high quality and flows beautifully! =D

Just spent the evening figuring out circuitry/wiring and how many batteries I need for Quorra. Man, this is going to cost me a fortune in battery power. $50 will get me through one day and two evenings (so, about six charges of eight batteries which last for approximately 2.5 hours). I'm building a switch into this.

That pattern might work for Nehelenia as well.

well I'm almost done Alucard since I need him for Con-G as well... just have to make the trench coat and hat...
And I ordered Mami a few days ago so it should be in the mail by next week and hopefully here before chistmas or shortly after... we'll see... its going to need a lot of modding since i just bought a XL to save the $10 custom size fee, I can sew myself and would have made it myself if I wasn't swamped, so I bought it and will fix it up as much as needed...
So after that's all done as well as my MTAC cosplay (just lightly modding a suit jacket, noting big), I can start my 3 Tales of Symphonia outfits for me (Zelos), our Sheena and Kratos... I figure Zelos and Sheena should only take Jan 1st-Feb 28th at most, Kratos might take me until May depending... he's going for the more complicated version of course XP

Oooh, I'll grab the stuff I need for a secret santa gift this weekend, then. Also, got the non-lightup parts of Quorra's arm armour done. And I was able to secure myself a dressform at another store just in time for my birthday, SO this weekend I plan to also have Quorra's torso armour all fitted and at least partially sewn. And get a start on modding the boots. I've got three days off, better make good use of it!

That a whole month on sale! 1-24th. I should go to see if they have some nice black Stretch Satin or Two Tone Taffeta for the last fabric I need for Nehelania dress and black twill for my Venus skirt.

I'm thinking slight stretch fabric to have a nice flow and bounce to her empire wait dress.


Edit: Finished Chewlin but I might have to remake him.... so sad but his head is to heavy for the mechanics of the flower base.
